As a long-time Clinical Psychologist, former president of the Illinois Psychological Association, and advocate within Chicago's GLBTQIA community, I can offer you expertise and peace of mind for whatever challenges you. For more than 25 years, I have worked with people from diverse groups-individual adults, couples, families, and children-and for many of those years, right here in Lakeview. My goal is to encourage growth and well-being, supporting you while being direct and gently challenging, and offering psychological and neuropsychological assessment that gives you answers and insight into what concerns you.

I place a heavy emphasis on authenticity, vulnerability, and connection when it comes to mental health. I believe that if addiction is a disease of isolation, then the solution to that is connection, with oneself and others. In my work with clients, I believe in helping them to cultivate self-acceptance, which leads to an improved sense of self-worth and greater love for oneself. Additionally, I encourage clients to have compassion for themselves, while having an appreciation for the therapeutic process. I consider it my role to help others discover and become their true self, so that what’s on the inside matches the outside.

We are all in a perpetual state of changing and growing throughout our lives; it is my belief that we may as well pay attention and guide our growth in a purposeful way. I truly believe that psychotherapy changes lives by creating opportunities for people to become who they should have been all along. By illuminating and examining your viewpoint in a very genuine and thoughtful manner, new perspectives arise naturally through the psychotherapeutic process. It is our job in therapy to together seize upon a new understanding and incorporate it into who you are becoming.

I am of the thought that we come into the world a blank slate upon which our experiences are written. What is written is sometimes harmful and may manifest as trauma, abandonment, neglect, etc. Those environmental messages often become unresolved emotional issues carried through life and into relationships. I go beyond the presenting symptoms to identify the root problems. I share my clinical impressions and propose an individualized plan. My treatment approach is generally cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Do you feel like you've lost your way? Maybe your use of substances or engagement in acting out behaviors has taken you so far from your values you don't know what they are anymore. Perhaps you've experienced a recent life change, and the future seems so uncertain you don't know who you are anymore. I combine a science-based therapeutic approach with a deep love of philosophy to help you work towards a fuller understanding of yourself and your world. Together, we'll use that robust understanding of yourself & your world to identify the gap between the life you have and the life you want and develop tools and goals to close that gap.

There is one skill that we could all benefit from: the ability to regulate our emotions. I teach individuals how to do this by examining their core beliefs. Sessions with me are meant to be educational. Individuals who seek out my help do so with the comfort of knowing that they will walk out of sessions knowing more about themselves and how to get what they want out of life. Once you have the ability to regulate your emotions, you will be able to behave in ways that brings you closer to your goals whether that's communicating effectively to your partner or maintaining a working relationship with frustrating coworkers.
